dollar funded battery marker a-123 systems is up for sale. the winning bid goes to -- china. so i asked was red china rising why u.s. taxpayers have to finance their battery companies. here's ann lee, author of "what the u.s. can learn from china," professor of nyu and visiting professor from beijing university and author kwof "death by china" and cnbc contributor. ann, let me go to you first. if we, the u.s. taxpayer and government are dumb enough to build a goofy battery company that goes bankrupt why shouldn't china scoop it up? >> i think this is a great story. first of all, taxpayer money wasn't wasted. all that money from the government went to help property plant and equipment here on american soil. and it's staying in america. chinese companies are not going to pack it up and move it to china. it's staying in the united states. they are going to hire u.s. employees to run it. that means more american prosperity. that's what we want. i think this is a win-win situation. the company that bought this is basically like the warren buffett of china. >> all right. let me get there. the
line of mac computers in china, apple is set to bring some of its manufacturing jobs back home to the usa. is this a political move or is this a clear-cut economic manufacturing move? here to discuss is "forbes" columnist and china export gordon chang, the author of "the coming collapse of china." serious question, do you think actual's doing this for politics or economics? >> actually both. but when you look at china, though, their manufacturing days are over. americans are less produmore pr less prone to strike -- >> are you sure american works are less prone to strike? we've reported on this show a whole bunch of strikes, including the hostess twinkie companies, the ports of los angeles and out on the west coast. we have obama in the white house. the unions are going whild here. in all seriousness, i don't think unions are any more placid here than they are in china. >> but in china, workers go out on wildcat strikes all the time. foxconn which manufactures about 97% of apple's products, they've been really subject to labor troubles, from suicides to strikes. so i think appl
of uncertainty. so you have china engineering a soft landing and starting to recover. you have europe away from the brink. greece got upgraded today. who would have thought it. that is what the market is looking at. saying okay. it is not going to be the worst kcase sharcenario, but you coul extend the middle class tax cuts and be done with it. it is in a recession. >> and i think the market would not like that very much. everybody is expecting that you get the middle class tax cuts done. >> and if you can get china and europe doing better. it is hard to be terribly bearish on the u.s. >> y are going to stay with our politico expert. this is a rally that has surprised experts. it hasn't been that easy to be optimistic. >> it is. i think you have to be cautious here. the probability that this could fall apart is very, very real. >> so, you have to be careful up at these levels as a trader. i have low exposure up here. i have protection. that is how you have to play this market. stay with us please. >> yesterday it looked like washington was inching towards a deal. but today, plan b could be sign
's not just about the u.s. they make a lot of money other places, right, phil? >> they do. china. china is huge for them and southeast asia. they're growing around the world. doesn't mean clear sailing. but it's a much healthier company than it was when it went into bankruptcy. >> michelle krk you tell me why buicks are so popular in china? >> it has a long history of strong image there. >> they're buicks. >> gm went in early. well, it's got a different image there. >> even tiger finally said i can't sell these things. >> any, appreciate it, michelle. thanks for trying to give me a straight answer. i'm sitting in the same chair i sit at in the morning. the big report on what happened in benghazi came out late last night and it seemed to go to great luns. >> they were mid level, right? >> yrks joe, they took the fall. from my information, i want to emphasize bend has been ongoing information. this state did and right now the people leaving the state department are victims of the government's need to cover up the larger story, that the security at the benghazi mission and it was a with th
problem. it's not a crime of passion, no robbery. strictly mental health. in china, they're having a similar phenomenon where these things are occurring with more frequency. you can't get your hands on guns in china but it's happening with knives and axes in schools. there's not really much you can do. columbine had an armed guard. virginia tech has an armed police presence. it's not the answer. i think it's just identifying these people and somehow stepping in before this happens. >> blake, let me ask you this -- mark opens the door about security and armed guards and so forth. my sister-in-law, bless her, down in virginia beach, is a schoolteacher. she called my wife this afternoon to relay a story about security in some of the inner city schools in that area. let me read you what she said. somebody comes into the school, they have to get buzzed in. this guy got buzzed in. we don't know yet why, how, when and where. but he got buzzed in. the buzzer goes off and sets an alert. follow me on this. somebody buzzes in. maybe they go through a window. teachers start a drill. the kids a
, china, europe, whatever, the s&p 500 up 12.1% year to date. that is a good year. that is an optimistic year. why is that? >> it seems like we're forgetting about that, doesn't it? with all this talk about what's happening going forward and concern about corporate growth. and truly, we're concerned about corporate growth as well because there really hasn't been that long-term information from our government, from our policyholde policyholders, no economic policy in real investment in assets that we've seen. that's going to be a problem going forward, not to mention the global slowdown, and we're hitting the top of corporate profits now. >> so you don't agree with this. you're turning bearish. >> not bearish in a sense of going forward intermittently. we think that most likely, we're going to see some growth hitting in the second quarter of next year. until we get through this fiscal cliff nonsense, until we see some growth coming out of china and europe, i think that -- >> china i think is showing growth. europe may not show growth in my lifetime, but they're going to be bailed out. do
ask you about some other stuff. japan rising. europe stocks doing very well. china stocks having a bit of a comeback year. in other words, as a global guide, there are options to playing this fiscal cliff game here in new york. >> absolutely. you don't have to just trade the s&p 500. i mean, look at tonight, you're seeing australia up a third of a point. the japanese yen is doing very well. look at hong kong. if you want to take what the federal reserve did and apply it internationally, look at hong kong. their monetary policy is pegged to what the federal reserve does. but they have an inflation issue and their economy is tied to china. so if you buy something like ewh, the hong kong etf, all those stocks are priced in hong kong dollars. if the hong kong dollar is repegged, the ewh will go up as much as the repegging. >> what does that mean for the u.s. market? where are you on the u.s. market right now? >> you know, i think right now, probably to the end of year, if we can get some kind of movement on this fiscal cliff, you have a real potential for a pop, 3%, 4%, 5%. unfortunately,

-- they're pumping in liquidity. so is china. now, in the long run, we may come to regret this very much. in the short run, i have a feeling all this liquidity is a bigger issue than the fiscal cliff for stocks. >> for stocks. i totally agree with you. we're printing money all around the world. it's good for the stock market. but we're pumping liquidity in, lower growth forecast from the ex, just about any acronym entity that you think of, we've seen lower growth forecast at the same time the credit spreads have come back down. yes, i think things are calmer. these are good things for equities. the yields on corporate bonds, you have to go out seven, eight years to get money on junk paper. corporations have more cash on their balance sheet. they're buying back shares. >> ting the financial picture -- there's nobody that's cutting marginal tax rates. nobody's deregulating and there's nobody that's limiting government. i get that. there's no supply side policies going on. but when you look hat the financial fear spreads or the financial risk spreads -- and here's one, banks. i saw dick bov
